What kind of a lunatic puts pickled jalapeno peppers on a Ruben sandwich? No! They don't go there.
Also, applying separate layers of mayonnaise, ketchup and that hot-dog relish that is a shade of bright, deep green not found in nature does not constitute Thousand Island dressing; despite the ingredients, it's not even close.
Jalapenos aside, it's a good sandwich, pan-toasted rye with sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, thick-sliced corned beef and the aforementioned condiments. But it's not really a Ruben.
The pickled jalapenos have wreaked havoc on my digestion.
